From the tactical committee:

"The Clinic will basically entail brief descriptions of tactics utilized in the shooting of 3 gun matches and an overview of what to expect. As with any firearms event, safety will be of paramount importance.  The main objective will be to introduce shooters to firearms manipulation on a more "tactical" application level and make them more comfortable when actually shooting an event. There will be a good amount of training since many individuals have not shot this type of event before. We, as the organizers, will handle this training. After some initial familiarization, we will attempt some live fire exercises and assist those individuals that may want some further training. The participants will already have a wealth of firearms experience, so we feel that it will take very little time to familiarize the participants.

 The courses involved will include (but may not be limited to):

 1) Shooting through a barrel or similar object.

 2) Utilizing barricades effectively

 3) Mandatory magazine changes while using cover.

 4) Malfunction drills (class 1,2, and 3)

 5) Utilizing various different types of cover

 6) Rapidly identifying "friend and foe" targets and proper engagement techniques


The above constitute some of the items that will be addressed at the clinic. This list is by no means all-inclusive as various other aspects of 3 gun competitions and tactical firearms applications in general will certainly arise. This summary just seeks to give the Committee an overview of what we are seeking to accomplish. We feel that the best way to make this event as fun, and more importantly, as safe as possible is to introduce people to this type of shooting beforehand by demonstrating these techniques. If anyone has any questions feel free to contact any one of us on the tactical committee and we will be happy to answer them. Thank You."
